Took a small vacation and decided to get close to the nature, as much as possible. So decided to stay in Bamboo room of the resort, as a fellow traveler on TripAdvisor had suggested it to be good if a kid is accompanying. It was a quite a good feeling on arrival, with look of the resort presented from an... More

I and my family visited Pondicherry for two days, one of which was in this resort. On reaching the reception area, we were given a juice which was a welcoming relief after a long drive. While chatting with Mr Umapathi, the manager in charge, my wife casually mentioned that our daughter chose the room as it was her birthday. As... More

Well, we've just completed our 10th visit to the lovely, relaxing Dune, and again we were not disappointed. Our son and his girlfriend were visiting us in India from France, so in our goal to test all the rooms during our 5 year stay in Chennai, we decided to try the Family Room this time. Two lovely rooms and a... More

We stayed at the art deco house early this month. The place is very well organized, good staff and well-maintained. Given our completely urban background, it took us one night to settle and feel comfortable in such close-to-nature setting. If the lighting could be brighter in the house it would be more appealing to me personally, but even that we... More

Hello there, here are a few thoughts after our stay at the hotel. - Directions to find the place are quite easy, there are a lot of sign boards leading up to it. - The hotel is close to Pondicherry prison, so there are cellphone jammers all around, so you will not get signal for your 2g or 3g. The... More

Was there for 3 days with family and my puppy. But for a few hiccups (roof leaked in one spot - rectified immediately) & (condition of cycles poor). Very pet friendly property with a team of ever smiling, understanding and helpful team to assist. The shortcomings can be overlooked (like u can't go on a mosquito free trek) This place... More

When we checked in. The rooms were not cleaned. 2. Mini bar was literally empty. 3. All the walls made by bamboo tree leafs. Was on pathetic condition... More

Stayed 2 nights in the resort in Family room which has two bedrooms and an living area. The maintenance and cleanliness of the rooms need to be improved. We had to call the manager after 1 night of stay to clean water around the living area(like a moat) which was not refreshed in 3 weeks and was breeding ground for... More

Though the resort looks sleepy and dull from outside gate the aesthetic style is different and unique. You will love walking around the resort. The price-rates are pretty expensive. But the environment is nice with green vegetation. Sea is very nearby. But I felt that they must have gone with a modern only style rather than mixing traditional style along... More

Stayed at the Dune last weekend. True to their title "ECO", we found every aspect of the resort from the structure materials, decorations, setting, etc true to that claim. The pool was fantastic with fabulous views around and the private beach is the highlight of this resort. Every type of room was unique in its structure and setting, with privacy... More
